Can't help much;
only to say I'm in the same boat. Waiting all day for origin to send me my game code to reactivate an old account.
Now my favorite character template was/is my Miner, lumberjack, fisher. With 50 paladin to help me travel. Trained him old school all the way. That is I did not buy skill, started from 0.

Welcome back to you both. First off, to cook fish steaks, get a cooking utensil (frying pan, rolling pin, flour sifter) and use this while standing near a heating source (Oven). The cooking menu will pop up and you can do all your cooking from there. It's different than it used to be!
The trial account enables you up through Mondain's Legacy, which means you can create elves, samurai, ninjas, and so on. The three primary expansions out right now are:
Stygian Abyss - The most content, I'd recommend this one first.
High Seas - Let's you use the new big ships and hunt pirates
Time of Legends - The newest expansion, many of the shard regulars are out in the new lands doing the dragon turtle spawn and hunting the current quest beasts. It sounds like they will continue to add new content to this land with future publishes, but it does somewhat demand a more established character. Then again, you could follow after the rest of the shard and loot kills that go ignored. Lots of items left on bodies.
If you upgrade to Stygian Abyss, you might want to make an imbuer. This will let you enchant magical equipment for your characters. It's very handy for making, say a lower reagent suit which you can then use on your casters. They'll be able to cast without having to buy and carry reagents. It's a huge help. If you do this, you might also want to try training up a mystic. Top tier mystics can cast Rising Colossus which is basically like Energy Vortexes on steroids.
Another route you can go if you have an imbuer is to create a newbie provoker or newbie tamer, then create +13 Provo or +13 Taming jewelry for them. It will make them immediately much more effective and let you save up a nest egg. Having Stygian Abyss will also give you access to bouras as a tamer, which are easy to tame and survive quite well. Heck, your tamer can hand off lowland bouras to your characters who don't have taming.
If you are going to hold off on the expansions, then the plain mage is still very flexible. ABC Archers are pretty popular too (Archery-Bushido-Chivalry).
At any rate, I hope my post was coherent. I'm running on little sleep today. What shard do you both play?

I know this is a bit late to the party, but...
I usually have 2 mules set up. 1 crafter mule and 1 gatherer mule.
100 arms lore
I keep soul stones with Bow/fletch and switch out as needed, but if you don't care for archers, this isn't necessary.
Eventually, you want to soul stone these and just use them on whatever character you want, but just starting out/back, it's fine to use a character just for these for now.
easiest template to use to farm low-mid items, for me, at least, is:
100 eval int
last 2 can be anything you want, examples:
100 spirit speak
100 spellweaving (a bit more advanced)
Getting a 100% LRC (lower reagent cost) suit should not be too difficult, especially if you made a 50 imbue/tailor or smith to start off with.
If you like, search other posts I've made on new characters or starting over on new servers and you will find a few posts on how to get some startup cash pretty quickly.
Great early farming once you can cast Blade Spirits is the Tomb of Kings on Ter Mur. Just walk in, go to one of the braziers and say Ord/Anord and when the flame wall comes down, run to the last room, straight up the hallway and you will see some gargoyles and silver serpents. Use Blade Spirits to clear it out and loot. Wait for respawn and repeat. You get tons of gold and magic items to use or unravel with your Imbuer. Common to gain 80k-100k here in just a couple of hours.
Thing of note here: You can get gargish rings/bracelets with 5% or 10% swing speed and no other attribues on them. These are fantastic pieces to Imbue and players will often pay hefty amounts for them.
